My research focus involves the connection of understanding fundamental reaction mechanics to the application of global demand for the activation of the C-H bond using heterogeneous catalysis. The long term goal is to consume readily available fuels such as natural gas to produce terminal olefins and oxygenates that are useful chemical feedstocks.

Raj Kantikumar Thakur
Laxminarayan Institute of Technology, India
Joined October 2016
The main goal of my research is to study the relationship between the physicochemical/structural properties of zeolites and the catalytic activity in the upgrading of biomass, crude oil and natural gas. Initially, I will characterize and measure the activity of conventional and pristine zeolites to then focus on the modification of the acid character of such zeolites...
